Acne is a source of incredible unease, which starts appearing around the age of puberty. It is a skin condition that appears in different forms and to hide them we try a lot of cosmetic treatments. Are you happy with the results? Maybe not, that’s because acne is a medical condition, not a cosmetic problem. There are a lot of contributing factors to acne like Stress, Pollution, Make Up, and Hormonal fluctuations. Also, the foods you eat could lead to acne flare-ups. In this blog, we are going to tell you about foods that may be the reason behind your  Acne breakout and ways to prevent it.

Foods that may cause Acne:

Acne appears when the pores get clogged with oil and dead skin, which may be in the form of  Blackheads, Whiteheads, Papules, Pustules, Nodule and Cysts.

The possibility of developing Acne increases when your diet consists of the following foods:

  • Consumption of Soda
  • Intake of Processed Food
  • One of the key additions in diet is - Dairy products, which increase the activity of certain enzymes, which contributes to the development of Acne. Although, you might think that you don’t consume a lot of dairy products, there are dishes , which contain dairy ingredients in different forms.
